Sylvester Stallone, who was in Oklahoma filming a show, was shocked after learning of the divorce. After which, he also filed a response to Flavin’s divorce, denying her claims and demands.

Sylvester Stallone didn’t sign a prenup before the wedding
Jennifer Flavin requested an option to join one of Stallone’s business entities or companies in the future, as well as access to their Palm Beach home. Sylvester Stallone denied all of her demands except for her desire to retain her maiden name and a fair distribution of their joint assets and liabilities.
As the couple finalize their divorce, a new detail has come to light through some legal documents. Legal documents obtained by TMZ revealed that Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin did not sign a prenuptial agreement before their marriage.
Prenuptial or prenuptial contract is a written contract between two people before they get married. It lists all the assets each has as well as their debts and specifies their property rights after marriage.
Not having a prenup can’t affect Flavin in any way. However, the lack of agreement may have caused a problem for the Rocky Balboa star. Sources say the couple did not sign a prenup due to the rushed nature of their 1997 wedding.
The lack of a prenup allows Jennifer Flavin to hold a large chunk of Stallone’s $400 million fortune. Flavin also made a fortune with her modeling career and her Serious Skincare cosmetics line. She started her modeling career at 19 and went on to star in several reality shows and movies.
